How to Make Fabric Wall Hangings : How to Top Stitch the First & Second Colors for a Wall Hanging


DAVID A. CLEMEN: Okay. Now, we’ve sewn the
two pieces together. We’re going to press them apart and then we’re going to press the
fabric to the side that we want to topstitch and the topstitch will actually hold that
raw edge on the side that we pressed it to. So, we just drop the needle there and I’m
going to start right here. I’m going to do a small back stitch and then I’m just gonna–it
chewed up my fabric a little so hold on. Okay. Once we get it there–and we move forward
a little bit and I’m going to topstitch about an eighth of an inch from the actual seam
and just run it all the way down. Okay. And then periodically, you want to check to make
sure that the seam hasn’t flipped back over this way, and you’ll be able to feel it under your right
hand or whichever hand you’re sewing towards. See, it flipped again on me. You can’t see
it but it’s flipped over this way, so you just have to periodically check it. Once again. One way to tell is you’ll be able to feel
a roll on this part of the fabric that it’s the–underneath is rolling that way. All right.
When you get to the end, just do a small back stitch and runoff, raise your needle and then
just clip the threads and now you have this part of it topstitched.
